NEW YORK, NY -- Major League Baseball is threatening to kick Alex Rodriguez out of the game for life unless the New York Yankees star agrees not to fight a lengthy suspension for his role in baseball's latest drug scandal, according to a person familiar with the discussions.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized as the investigation pushes to a conclusion.

Whether Commissioner Bud Selig would actually issue a lifetime ban was unclear, and baseball officials know a permanent ban could be shortened by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz, the person said.

Based on past cases, people involved believe Horowitz might cut a lifetime ban to about 200 games.

spoiled over paid jock's that get away with drug's. if a civilian did drug's he would be in jail. why aren't sport's canning these druggie's? if I worked and did drug's i'm out of a job. no second chance's or rehab. sport's is a bunch of high paid drug and alcohol abuser's. I stay home and refuse to go to see a bunch of over paid cry babie's.
